Two bond issues to fund improvements were approved Monday by Madison County Commissioners.
One bond issue is for $105,000 and will be used to fund an upgrade at Sewer District No. 1. The upgrade is an ultra-violet disinfection system. It provides disinfection of treated water prior to discharge into the receiving stream, said Tom Taylor, sewer plant operator. The system kills any bacteria left in the treated water before it dumps into the stream.
The other bond issue is for $40,000 and will be used to fund a roof repair on the large hangar at the Madison County Airport.
Both issuances will be for five years at an interest rate of 2.25 percent. The bond issues are financed by dollars in the general fund and the interest income will flow back into the county’s accounts.
The bonds were issued through Dinsmore and Shohl’s municipal finance specialist, Jennifer R. Blaser.
In other business, based on the recommendation of the county engineer, commissioners approved awarding the 2014 paving contract to A&B Asphalt of Springfield of Ohio, which submitted the lowest and best bid: $617,132.
If a person who’s obliged to make child support payments is having difficulty finding work, the child support staff of the department of family and children can help.
“We have the resources to help with job search,” said Sue Mosier, administrator, to commissioners.
She and her staff appeared before the commission as it issued a proclamation proclaiming August as Child Support Awareness Month.
She said those obliged to make those payments should contact the department to make payment arrangements. The number is 1-800-852-0243.
